HAPPY SUMMER!

Wow wow wow! What a truly amazing school year it has been! I don’t know about you, but I feel like I blinked and now it’s over. I want to sincerely thank all of the PTA volunteers we had this year. We are a very active PTA and we wouldn’t be able to offer the services, events and support without the help of our awesome helpers. I also want to thank Mrs. Coates and Mrs. McNerney for being so supportive of our organization and for creating a school environment that is so focused on caring! Thank you to Mrs. Price and Mrs. Benson for offering their friendly attitudes and endless amounts of patience and for always answering my questions with a smile. And to all of the McAuliffe teachers and staff for making our school such a welcome place to volunteer, I thank you.

SUMMER ANNOUNCEMENTS

HOMEWORK SURVEY. Mrs. Coates and Mrs. McNerney are interested in your feedback regarding last year’s homework policy. Please take a moment and complete this BRIEF survey (it really is super brief! Only 3 questions!). https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/V3NLWGL
2 LITER BOTTLES. Additionally, the 4th grade teachers will be in need of clear 2 liter bottles for a project they will be working on in the beginning of the school year. Please save any you may collect between now and September and drop them off to Mrs. Brown’s classroom or the main office.
PTA VOLUNTEERS. Lastly, if you are interested in taking on a more involved role in our PTA this school year, please let me know! We are always looking for committee leaders, extra volunteers and new ideas (example committees: Fall and Spring After-school Clubs, Staff Appreciation, Fall Fundraiser, Communications, Family-night Event Planning, Back to School Picnic Committee, etc!). We are holding a calendar planning meeting next week and we would love input from other PTA members!

Enjoy the remainder of your summer! Look for school and PTA information to arrive by mail in the middle of the August. See you on August 22nd for the Open House (Time: TBD).

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or just want to share an idea. You can also ‘Like’ our Facebook page to keep up with the latest McAuliffe PTA news and events.

We will look forward to a great start to the school year and we can’t wait to have you JOIN THE PTA when we return:)
